Acorns is a North Tyneside-based registered charity established in 1999 to provide therapeutic and support services to children affected by domestic violence and support for families and non-abusing carers. Based in North Shields, we provide services to people across the Borough and work closely with other organisations to extend and complement the services offered to children and families.

The ethos of Acorns is ‘Safer Lives, Better Chances’. This is fundamental to our work and inbuilt within all of our services for children, women and families. We aim to empower them with an empathic, person/child centred approach and through raising their awareness and confidence, make informed choices in their own future and future relationships.
